Chaga Innonotus obliquus
Known as the ‘King of Medicinal Mushrooms’, it contains one of the highest known levels of antioxidants, including SOD (Superoxide dismutase) an enzyme group that is known to reduce oxidative stress. Among numerous compounds Chaga has constituents that help boost the immune system, balance blood sugar, normalize cholesterol, and is a great source of minerals (like zinc).
Chaga, when extracted properly, has deep earthy tones and dark vanilla flavours.
Raw Chaga pieces require brewing into a decoction however Chaga is also available in an extract form as powder or tincture. All forms of Chaga are excellent for Elixirs for Flavour, Function & Feeling!
I’ll be sharing more about how to use Chaga in the upcoming Elixir Crafting workshop at Light Cellar
